When driving through much of Europe it is the law that UK car headlamps are adjusted so not to dazzle oncoming drivers as UK headlamps are designed for driving on the left-hand side of the road.
Without adjustment the dipped beam could dazzle oncoming drivers and this could result in a fine. In some countries it is compulsory to use dipped headlights at all times when driving during the day.
Before driving on the continent, always ensure your lights meet legal requirements by using beam converters night and day (inc rain, fog etc). Remember to remove the beam converters as soon as you return to the UK.
Our headlamp beam converters are suitable for use on the latest Xenon / HID headlamps and also all other standard headlamps. Unlike other brands, the patented design has been developed using Heat Mirror Foil technology to reflect heat and UV emissions back into the lamp reflectors.
They are suitable for all vehicles and include individual fitting diagrams for over 800 vehicles including the latest 'Clear Glass Headlamps', 'Projector', 'Xenon,' and 'Glass Line Pattern' headlamps inside the packaging.

A word of warning, once you return from the continent - you need to remove these again to keep police happy, But these seem to peel off in two sections. Peeling off the first section will mean your lights will work properly for the police.- If you continue to drive for around half an hour with your lights on and the first section of these peeled off - the heat from your lights will soften the glue keeping the last bit stuck in place - it will then be easier to prise off the last sections without scratching the headlamp lenses on your vehicle.
Disclaimer - I have had a couple of lessons from continental cops on how to adjust my headlights. You go into an underground car park, drive the car against a wall and then reverse until the light from the headlights on the wall shows a clear set of "horns". These are the ones you have to kill using a beam converter. You align the beam converter until the horns disappear. This is what blinds the other driver and this is what you have to eliminate. By the way, you may find that the position where it happens is _DIFFERENT_ from the one on the diagram.
The older "stripe" model was considerably better for this. You could kill the "horn" completely. With this - not possible at least for my vehicle (Isuzu Denver).
So while you are complying with the legal reqs, you are actually not improving yours (and others) safety by much.
Could definitely see the difference in beam pattern once these were on, they were no longer flicking up to the left where they'd dazzle drivers on the opposite side.
The 1st face held well, but the 2d face didn't hold for more than 3km and the reflective part flew away somewhere on the first road of France (limited at 50km/h) ! On both headlights.
Definitly a quality issue from the product.
The headlights were properly cleaned before putting the product, and this is why the adhesive layer is still in place (and was really hard to remove by the way).
Batch No. 1645TS in case that info is needed for quality claim.
Update: I have found that using the recommended method of removal, i.e. heating with headlights prior to removing, and if you are very careful, the adhesive backing can be removed intact. I then place them in an old 'self adhesive' stamp book and have managed to get three uses out of one set!
It's difficult to say if the beam converters worked effectively as one of them had fallen off before I had reached my destination, less than 5 hours and 250 miles. The other converter disappeared at some point during the next day - less than 100 miles more. I didn't have the opportunity to test them in the dark.
The sticky residue left behind was far more long lasting. It took a fair amount of effort and nail varnish remover to get rid of it. All in all not a good buy and I would definitely recommend trying a different make.
This product did the job as advertised but I found the instructions less than comprehensive.
I fitted the product to a 2012 Ford Fiesta with extremely sloping clear lens. No help was given as to how to find the centre of the lens.
As an engineer this did not cause me a problem but many customers will likely fit the "mask" in the wrong position.
I choose to disagree with this assertion made in the advert that these "Patented" converters are the only way to effect the necessary change especially the inference that you cannot use "tape" (of the correct type and in the correct position)
At the Amazon reduced price of £3.50 I purchased the product so that I could see (confirm) where to fit the "shield" and to remove any possibility that I would be stopped by the Police for using a non Euro approved method!
The product met my needs at a reasonable price and gave me piece of mind. I would have been disappointed had I paid the standard retail price for what is basically a bit of sticky tape, the largest part of which was not required on my vehicle.
On removal the sticky layer was VERY difficult to remove without special cleaners, even after just 5 days!
